While struggling with hormones on top of a global pandemic, Garner opened up about her daughter's struggles but found a way to ease her stress.

"Here's something I'm not very proud of: I even watched Austin Powers with her," she said. "Talk about not appropriate. But I just needed to see that laugh."

"I felt like, 'Okay, so it's fake. I don't care.' We just have to remind our bodies of how to have joy and I'm just letting it happen," she added.

"It's so naughty, but it's not awful. I mean, it's pretty awful," she laughed. "She's learned a few things, but it's funny."

Garner opened up and said that the movie sesh came after something they usually found joy in, reading, wasn't having the same effect on her anymore.

"I can't even list the amount of books I've read aloud to her — out of the blue, she just didn't want to read anymore," she said.

"When [the pandemic] started it just didn't feel good to her," she said. 

Garner also added that she has also been allowing her daughter to sneak in some funny YouTube videos here and there to keep her laughing.
